Citizens of Heaven
A verse-by-verse study of the book of Philippians.
Philippians is just four pages in God’s Word, but it contains some of the most celebrated verses in the entire Bible. It’s PACKED with amazing wisdom that means so much to the Church.
Why ‘citizens of heaven’? In Philippian times, believers had immense pressure to cave to the Roman culture (sound familiar?), Paul was trying to encourage the people, strengthen those facing hostility, wake up the distracted, to persevere in opposition—he called them to mature discipleship and strong community, ultimately to live as citizens of heaven, not of Rome.
How can you live as a citizen of Heaven while living on earth? That’s what Jesus Christ died and bought us for!
